Chicago is lovingly known as a city of neighborhoods – and each of the 77 has its own perks, personality and presence within the city. The Loop, specifically, might be the most well-known of them all. To out-of-towners, it’s “the area with all the tall buildings and The Bean.” To locals, it’s the geographical epicenter of the city that’s proximate to most offices and the river.
Whether you’re living in Chicago for the first time or are a local seeking a change of scene, there are plenty of reasons to consider a move to The Loop.
Why move to The Loop?
Generally known as a business district, The Loop might be a surprising choice – but there are some sneaky, great reasons why this neighborhood could be a great choice.
- The geography: not only is The Loop proximate to most offices, it’s also the geographical center of the city – making all other areas highly-accessible both via car and public transit, which cross-crosses almost every block of the neighborhood. You’re literally in the center of it all!
- The commute: if you’re in the majority of Chicagoans whose office is in the Loop, you’ll be pleased to find that living in this neighborhood offers a delightfully short commute. No matter where you live, you’re most likely just a short walk away from work.
- The culture: The Art Institute, Lyric Opera and Chicago Symphony all call The Loop home – making some of Chicago’s best cultural institutions just a stone’s throw away from where you live.
- The views: almost every building in The Loop is a high-rise, meaning that no matter where you live, you’re bound to have an incredible, bird’s-eye view. If you’re lucky that might include lake views, too!
